Whilst we all love those macaroni necklaces from kindy and those precious finger paintings that mostly turn out like blobs on a page we do however enjoy being spoiled with a few finer things on our special day known as Mothers Day. Whether you are hunting for a gift for your own mum, grandma or yourself (lets face it some men aren’t that clued on with the gift selection) I got you covered with a number of gift ideas to suit all budget types and tastes.
PAMPER MUM WITH A CINEMATIC ESCAPE THIS MOTHER’S DAY
Pamper mum with a Gold Class escape at Event Cinemas. With packages from $60* per person, the Gold Class experience includes entry to the palatial Gold Class cinema, a devilishly delicious dessert and glass of champagne – everything she needs to feel like a queen.
To top it all off, May brings with it the very best new release films including Melissa McCarthy’s new laugh-a-minute comedy Life of the Party, and Diablo Cody’s ode to motherhood Tully, starring Charlize Theron as a mother in crisis who develops a bond with her gifted night nanny. For the mum that’s a bit of a Dancing Queen, make her sing Gimmie! Gimmie! Gimmie! with a special sing-a-long screening of the 2008 smash hit Mamma Mia!
Stop by your local Event Cinemas or head to www.eventcinemas.com.au to pick up the ultimate gift for your Mum.
